  5. Patriarch Theodore thanked Epiphanius for his “loyalty to the second-best Patriarchate”

Patriarch Theodore thanked Epiphanius for his “loyalty to the second-best Patriarchate”

The letter of response of Patriarch Theodore to the letter of “Metropolitan” Epiphanius Dumenko about the creation of the Exarchate of the Russian Orthodox Church in Africa was published on Facebook by the speaker of the OCU, Yevstratiy Zorya.

“With this friendly letter of ours, we would like to express our deep gratitude for the letter of support you sent regarding the anti-canonical intrusion of the Russian Church into the jurisdiction of the ancient Patriarchate of Alexandria.

We are compelled to fight, exerting all possible forces in order to preserve the canonical privileges of the Throne of St. Mark handed down many centuries ago by the God-bearing Fathers.

This generous display of support for the Patriarchate of Alexandria and all of Africa on your part is imprinted for life with gratitude in the memory of our hearts as proof of your noble and brotherly love, but also your devotion and respect for the second-best Patriarchate and its Primate,” wrote the head of the Patriarchate of Alexandria.
